Summer Solstice: Boots & Bling


As last week’s Pay it Forward Friday featured the All-Star Gala in Support of SickKids , it only makes sense to share another really cool event that is helping kids in Toronto. One with a country twist. Summer Solstice: Boots & Bling, an event benefiting St. Joseph’s Health Centre’s Paediatric Emergency, is taking place Thursday June 25th at the Liberty Grand in Toronto.

This is the 5th year for the Summer Solstice, an all-white event thrown by Front Street Capital Charitable Foundation. This year, the event will push the fundraising total over the $1,000,000 mark for the annual party. The dress code is summer whites with a wild western flair.

Do you know an organization that should be featured in Pay It Forward Friday? I’m always looking to help spread the word on ways travellers can help locals, the environment or animals while on vacation and while at home. Leave a comment on this post or email me directly at
